Key projects included Merce Cunningham’s ‘Ocean’ at the Roundhouse in partnership with the Guildhall School of Music, Beau Geste’s ‘Transports Exceptionnels’ – a duet for one man and 13-tonne digger – and Royston Maldoom’s ‘Overture 2012’, a commission for 120 young Londoners to dance at the Royal Albert Hall accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra.
